Wood ogers please help!

Hi ther gents - Does anyone have any suggestions for a wood type for a paddle? The paddle will be used for stand up surfing. The shaft will be approx 6ft long. It needs to be mostly stiff with maybe just a little flex. Is laminated poplar and Oak a decent pair? Oak/Cedar? Lastly, how in the heck do I get that waxy looking finish on the paddle? Paddle needs to be sealed as will be in the water but I don't want it to be slippery like it would be if varnished. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

How about Ash/Iroko

Several coats of a wood oil would probably give the waxed look you mention
